Hearing Aids Industry Overview
The global hearing aids market size was valued at USD 10.1 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.9% from 2022 to 2030.
The market growth can be attributed to key factors such as the increasing adoption of hearing aids devices, growing awareness regarding technologically advanced devices for the treatment of deafness and hearing impairment, and the increasing prevalence of hearing loss due to the growing geriatric population. The market is a highly technological driven market that has seen the emergence of novel products including smart linked hearing aids, invisible hearing aids, and AI- and Bluetooth-enabled hearing aids that can be connected to Android or iOS.
For example, in August 2021, Phonak introduced the world's first waterproof rechargeable, Audéo Life hearing aid. Hence, hearing aid companies are improving patients' experiences with new features and technology, which is expected to fuel market growth in the coming years. Moreover, in the U.S., approximately 15% of patients aged between 18 and over suffer from hearing loss. For instance, the FDA announced a proposal in October 2021 that it wants to establish a new category of low-cost over-the-counter hearing aids.

This opens up a new revenue stream for businesses looking to acquire a foothold in the OTC hearing aid market. Such substantial government and regulatory support are projected to have a long-term positive impact on the hearing aids sector in the U.S.
Moreover, hearing service offices and general healthcare service associations of local governments in both developed and developing economies are emphasizing early screening of deafness and the provision of hearing aids to people. As the healthcare sector in emerging economies is moving towards privatization, healthcare infrastructure in these countries is undergoing rapid development. Education and increased awareness regarding health among people are also playing an important role in increasing the demand for these devices and their diagnostic services.
The COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant impact on the healthcare industry. Among COVID-19 positive patients, most hospitals are running out of beds. In addition, a number of elective procedures are being canceled or postponed in order to reallocate resources. According to the Hearing Industries Association (HIA), hearing aid sales in the U.S. has declined by 29.7% in the first half of 2020. Due to the postponement of procedures like the cochlear implantation technique, which is one of the most significant treatments to address hearing impairments, the pandemic had a detrimental influence on the total sales of hearing aid support goods. As a result, sales of hearing aids from major manufacturers have decreased. Despite all of these obstacles, the hearing aids business and other medical industries are progressively regaining ground as the COVID-19 situation throughout the world normalizes.
Furthermore, countries all over the world are now focused on reducing deafness and this, in turn, has led to the introduction of various initiatives that aim to promote awareness and provide free care to patients. Subsidies, grants, and funding are offered by governments all across the world to prevent and manage hearing disorders. For instance, the New South Wales (NSW) Statewide Infant Screening-Hearing (SWISH) program in Australia aims at identifying babies born with permanent bilateral deafness in NSW. Such initiatives are expected to further boost the demand for these devices globally.
